I haven’t cleaned up the pencilling obviously but I enjoyed this page, because I found out you can translate English into hierglyphics online, so the text on the tomb wall says something like “beware the woman with the snake-green eyes”. And that’s the femme fatale here of course. And my cats make a cameo.
This is cool, @arthur whelan! Indeed, there’s something about this page that feels a bit retro to me, too. And I think this is not a bad thing! It’s great that you’re drawing in a way that you enjoy. I tried to guess what parts you did traditionally and what parts were digital, but I couldn’t quite be sure - I’m assuming that you did the drawings and inking traditionally, and the colors digitally? Or are the colors also traditional watercolor, and the digital part was just a few general adjustments? Keep up the good work!
2023/5/11. Good morning fellow artists. Trying to get better in drawing muscular bodies. I decided to practice quick sketches 30 mins every morning (1 pose 10 mins) until the end of summer. Let’s see what happens. Thanks for any comment or advice. Have a good day.
I gave up drawing at 13 thinking I would never be any good, and started again at age 30. I would wonder in the middle of the night if i was wasting my time, but came across three good pieces of advice: Don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up. From a practical point of view, an excellent tip I read somewhere was to copy old master drawings, write the date on them, store them in a cardboard box. Then copy the first one again. This way you will see proof of improvement because you can’t see yourself getting better from day to day. Hope this helps. I’m illustrating graphic novels now.
I've decided to start this course over. It's been several months since I've done any gesture work. My goal is to start pushing poses more and using more confident lines. There are still some scratchy lines, but old habits are hard to break. 1-6 are 30 second gestures. The rest are 2 minutes.
How to get in love with gesture drawing? I don't like my results and I struggle with the time. I hope you have some advices. Thanks
This is something I read in a book - start with five dots. They are the head, feet and hands. And build the imaginary pose from there.
